Zhenya Minyailo, 4 years old, multiple pathology of the genitourinary system, examination and surgery is required.

Money for treatment (64,968.52 GBP) was collected by TV viewers of Channel One and Rusfond readers.  Rusfond UK collects the donations to cover the costs of living expenses in London, household needs and medical supplies (catheters).

My son was born with a severe pathology. His bladder was formed outside and urinary canal was damaged. On day 5 Zhenya had his first surgery, however after that kidney problems began. Two years later surgery was performed again, doctors carried out a plastic surgery of the bladder. But last year reflux was discovered - throwing urine back into the kidneys. He was operated again. Then it was found that the volume of his bladder was disastrously small. During all those years the specialists were not able to eliminate epispadia - splitting of the urinary canal. Zhenya wears diapers all the time. I read on the Internet about Dr. Mushtak from London, who operates children with such diagnoses, and sent him medical documents. The doctor agrees to perform the surgery, increase the bladder and correct other abnormalities. However, we cannot afford it. Our family has three young children and only my husband works, his salary is sufficient to meet the needs. Please help us to regain our son's health!

Natalya Minyailo, Omsk region.


Children’s consultant urologist at the Great Ormond Street Hospital, professor Imran Mushtak (London, United Kingdom): “Boy needs a complicated reconstructive operation to restore the functions of the genitourinary system. As a result of this operation, Zhenya will be able to control urination and it will significantly help change the boy's life for the better.”
